MA - Snow Geese and more - Gill 12/03
Back to mild, almost balmy conditions after Saturday's light snowfall. I didn't get any birding done today but this morning's run came back with quite a haul; a Great Horned Owl calling through the pre-dawn fog, a very loud flock of some 275 Snow Geese moving SW at about 06:40 hours over Upinngil Farm, Pine Grosbeaks calling from some very tall spruces near Giving Tree School and a couple of Red Crossbills over our house on Main Road - not too shabby!
